Children's Affirmations: I am a good listener

A little while ago, I shared with you all, the bedtime routine that my daughter follows. I also talked a little bit about affirmations for children. And today I'm sharing another one of the affirmations we currently use.

It's certainly no secret that you begin to believe what you hear over and over - and this is the premise behind this affirmation for children: "I am a good listener" ;)

The point here isn't whether or not your child actually is or isn't a good listener - but instead to introduce and use positive self talk as a way to improve a skill; accomplish a goal; etc. If your child actually is a poor  listener (being careful how you actually define this), then you may want to alter it to "I was a better listener today" on a day where this was in fact the truth.

More on this later....!
